I have been impressed with the caliber of attorneys and the quality of representation in each instance. The firm has a well-deserved reputation for providing excellent legal services, along with a solid and impressive client base across multiple industries,” noted Katz. “And, given Clark Hill’s strengths both domestically and globally, it provides a great footprint for me to expand my practice even further.”
